More Black Tuesday workload

It's going to be a busy reboot Wednesday it seems:

  • Wireshark 1.8.10 and 1.10.2 have been released today
  • Java 7u40 has been released today
    Thanks Neil for reporting it the first to us.

I looked and looked, but could find no vulnerablities fixed in Java 7.40. Lots of bugs fixed though. However, when we deployed it, our most important Java application stopped working. We've had to uninstall 40 and put 25 back on. To help anyone else with this problem, here's the meat of a batch file I wrote to remove 40. I have only tested this against the 32 bit version of 40.

==Begin batch file==
REM JRE Runtime Environment 7.0 Update 40 (32bit)
MsiExec.exe /X{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83217040FF} /quiet /norestart
MsiExec.exe /X{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83217040F0} /quiet /norestart
==End batch file==
